The Royal Opera House have asked Daniel to write a sequence of four illustrated essays for their quarterly magazine to mark the 60th anniversary of the ‘Friends of Covent Garden’. 

Opera and ballet lover that he is (and long-term ‘Friend’), Daniel has been spending many masked hours huddled away in the ROH archives unearthing all sorts of secrets about the real in-house goings-on as these most ambitious, expensive and politically controversial of art forms have been produced, performed, and financed from 1962 to the present. 

Look out for the Royal Opera House Magazine throughout the 2022-23 Covent Garden season!
